Description

This is my second shirt, the first I’ve sewn with long sleeves. I used Burda’s Jakob Shirt pattern. I straightened the body cut and hem, then added a more formal placket to the cuff. See my how to for information on the placket. I hate sewing button holes and buttons so used studs on this fabric, which is tough enough for them. I call it his Campfire Shirt, because I envisage he’ll wear it around the campfire next time we’re camping :)

    Your creation is amazing. I love the fabric, the pattern and the color. You reach a perfect result. I’m almost graduating in fashion and they focus on women clothes, so i have to congratulate you because of the effort and the final outcome. On top of that you shirt is perfect for camping,ride horses or bikes. I miss that. in my country I used to ride horses, but some day I’ll do it again either Australia or Cuba.
